Would anyone consider going to Lake Como and getting a room with no view? I would not. That is why I chose Eremo Gaudio. It has the most spectacular views of the lake possible. From the reception area, we rode two funiculars and then took an elevator to get to our room. From that perspective, the views of the lake are just stunning. Our room (the Fiumelatte) also had an enormous balcony.
The rooms are plain but clean and comfortable. There is an in-room safe and mini fridge. The included breakfast is adequate, but nothing out of the ordinary (except for the beautiful lake views on the breakfast terrace). Light dinners are served at the restaurant, but I would choose one of the restaurants on the harbor or on the town square. Better yet, stock up on wine, cheese, prosciutto, bread and fruit at the nearby little grocery store and have dinner on your balcony while enjoying the quiet and beauty of your surroundings. The grocer is right across the street from the tourist information office. There is also an ATM machine next door.
Eremo Gaudio is a beautiful property. I would definitely stay here again.
